Enlarged Heart Treament

To diagnose an cardiomegaly, a health care provider will usually do a physical exam and ask questions on your symptoms and medical history.

Tests which will be done to help diagnose an enlarged heart (cardiomyopathy) and its cause include:

Treatment of an cardiomegaly (cardiomegaly) depends on what is causing the heart problem.


If cardiomyopathy or another sort of heart condition is the cause of an enlarged heart, a health care provider may recommend medications, including:

Diuretics : These drugs reduce the quantity of sodium and water in the body, which may help lower blood pressure.

Other vital sign drugs : Beta blockers, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) may be used to lower blood pressure and improve heart function.

If medications aren't enough to treat an cardiomegaly , medical devices and surgery could also be needed.

Surgery or other procedures to treat an cardiomegaly may include:

  1. Pacemaker : A pacemaker may be a small device that's usually implanted near the collarbone. One or more electrode-tipped wires run from the pacemaker through the blood vessels to the inner heart. If the guts rate is too slow or if it stops, the pacemaker sends out electrical impulses that stimulate the guts to beat at a steady rate.
  2. Heart valve surgery : If an cardiomegaly is caused by heart valve disease, surgery could also be needed to repair or replace the affected valve.
  3. Coronary bypass surgery : If an enlarged heart is due to a blockage in the coronary arteries, this heart surgery may be done to reroute blood flow around a clogged artery.
